Not going to pay 20+ dollars for a Burger/Fries and a Drink and feel like I got good value from 320.

My other complaint was when they swapped from Oyster Mushrooms to Button Mushrooms and kept the price the same.

An unfortunate amount of empty spaces for lease in the neighbourhood right now. At least the Lot 102 building is getting some attention. The deck was torn off, siding repaired and a new paint job. Too bad it’s for a cannabis shop.

I know a business owner in Kensington.

They went from printing money to barely making payroll. Thankfully, they were smart when times were good and now are in a position to buy low, and possibly expand.

Did they break it down - economy (demand), min wage, taxes, lease, ...? I’m curious- all of that had changed since the boom times.

Property Taxes.

Min wage meant more precise scheduling of staff, he'd run short and when they unexpectedly got super busy and then try to call in reinforcements.
